  • My face looks the same when there isn’t a beer feed when I was expecting one and when I do my first set of intervals after time off the bike. #burn #ouch @feltbicycles @zippspeed @sramroad @teamtwenty20 📸 @cwnewell
  • Very blessed that my husband loves riding as much as I do AND it’s an activity we can enjoy together! @feltbicycles @teamtwenty20  #standarddeluxedirtroadcentury  @cwnewell 📸
  • Check out my new blog post - www.ridewithallie.com (link on bio) it features a bit of the trip @carsonlegg and I took a few weeks ago with our @gearbox_adventure_rentals #vanlife
  • Rain, wind, and mud. Gravel is no joke- but is it gravel racing when it’s all mud? It’s definitely all smiles and racing with my husband and some of my favorite @thedramakings made for a great time at the @terrafirmacycling #standarddeluxedirtroadcentury (ps- I washed off before my picture was taken.) @feltbicycles  @teamtwenty20  @oakleybike  thank you CW for the photos! @cwnewell
  • Sending it into the weekend! Going to have a chill Saturday and on Sunday I’ll be racing 100 miles in Talladega for the Alabama Ass Whoopin’ - Hella Hundo gravel race! @alaawhoopinrace
  • We are like mountains. We are outstanding! We do have bumps, humps and jagged edges. But most importantly we are made in the image of God, and He sees us as whole and beautiful.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139: 14

  • Some beautiful riding in the Pisgah National Forest! #besafe #beseen @cycliq @teamtwenty20 pc: @carsonlegg
  • Last night we drove to the top of Mount Mitchell and camped out in our @gearbox_adventure_rentals van. I’ve been to the mountains in Europe, out west, and in the east. All take effort to conquer and each have their own special views. #blueridgemountains #appalachianmountains
  • LIFE UPDATE- retirement!
As I take a step back from professional road racing - It’s exciting, it’s sad, I feel a lot of emotion, to be honest. Cycling has been a tremendous part of my life for many years and it’s time to step into a new season of life. Personally and professionally, I feel like it’s a great time to exit. 
The past 6 years of professional road racing have provided some of the most incredible learning experiences, I’ve met some of the most amazing people and some of my best friends. 
The management, the sponsors, the donors, and of course, the fans… It’s been an incredible journey. I am very grateful to have been apart of such an amazing community. Even as I step into this season of retirement, cycling will certainly be a part of me. Racing isn’t over totally- I still have a few gravel races this fall and will race some gravel next year. For now, it’s time to take a deep breath, a step back, and focus on life at home. For the full story head over to my blog- link in bio!
